| Hi, I'm random. How are you? »
Or, you try getting a toddler to stand still in front of the Christmas tree.

Oh those are adorable. No, I wouldn't want to even try to get a toddler to stand still & get a good pic, that takes effort. Judging by the time this post was uploaded, u had a rough night, or just couldn't sleep. It says 4:25 am!!! Is that true? Hopefully you did get a great shot of that beautifull girl :)

I think any of those would be splendid on a holiday card! She's gorgeous. Now I'm totally jonesing to see my niece and nephew in a few days.
Nicole | December 18, 2006 6:51 AM
She is just stunning. I know she is only a toddler, but you can see what a beautiful woman she will be!
Bunny | December 18, 2006 7:24 AM
OK, if those are the "rejects" then you guys have standards way higher than mine. All of those are very cute photos, especially the final one where she isn't looking directly at the camera and is pulling at her shirt (blouse?)

The only thing missing from that last one is a watch. "They've been taking pictures for hours now. These tights itch. I'm missing out on valuable playing time. Where's Elmo? Are they done yet?!?"
Beautiful as always.
patricia | December 18, 2006 7:34 AM
Love that last one in particular!
It's like she's saying "Look! I have a HAND!"
coolchick | December 18, 2006 7:43 AM
I like the 3rd one, even though you couldn't see her face. That would have beeen a pretty card.
But the one yo sent was great!
jodi | December 18, 2006 8:18 AM
Rejected...and yet totally adorable.
wordgirl | December 18, 2006 8:31 AM
I would take any one of those, Beth! She is so darn cute and makes me just break out in one big Christmas *grin*!
Maribeth | December 18, 2006 8:37 AM
I agree with the others, I think they're all just darling. I can see how they're probably not what you wanted for your holiday cards, but still adorable.
Kate the Shrew | December 18, 2006 8:40 AM
Yes, getting a toddler to cooperate for pics can be so much fun. Grrrr.
But we forgive them because they're so lovely. I mean, just look at her! She's gorgeous!
I posted a few rejects -and the winner- of ours as well. ;-)
ewe_are_here | December 18, 2006 8:40 AM
I love them all especially the last one, it's as though she's looking at her watch saying "ok how much longer is this going to go on?"
Cynthia | December 18, 2006 8:48 AM
Mia rules! She is such a beautiful nice little girl! Christmas greetings to your whole family from Switzerland!!
Andrea | December 18, 2006 8:49 AM
But what a sweet outfit!
pseudostoops | December 18, 2006 9:04 AM
and then the one picture you get where she is standing still and looking perfect, she blinks when you take the picture.
nikki | December 18, 2006 9:05 AM
Been there done that, try it with two toddlers!
You can see my reject card picture here:

We had the same problem with C and ended up using one similar to the one you have 3rd down from the top. Heh!
Laurie | December 18, 2006 9:13 AM
I love all of them! Especially the second one, where she's trying to flash us with her bloomers...
Sam | December 18, 2006 10:07 AM
As far as rejects go, those are pretty darn cute. Hope you post the non-reject one too for us losers who didn't sign up for a Christmas card. ;)
Traci | December 18, 2006 10:24 AM
I love that second one. The first and only professional portrait of the girls shows the oldest, then around 3-1/2, flashing the world.
At least she's not picking her nose.
They're all beautiful and any one of them would make a great card.
ann adams | December 18, 2006 11:20 AM
You should try it with two. I didn't even manage to get a picture with Ian in it.
Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah | December 18, 2006 11:50 AM
Gorgeous! Oh my gosh. I may have to go ahead and put my order in.
And I am so sad I don't have a Mutter Mushroom recipe for you.
jen | December 18, 2006 11:57 AM
Those are all so cute! I have many reject pics from past years of Christmas photo shoots.
Kelley | December 18, 2006 12:28 PM
I love that first picture!
jessica | December 18, 2006 12:35 PM
I think those are all adorable. They look very real, not so posed.
lizgwiz | December 18, 2006 12:52 PM
She looks so grown up. Merry Christmas!
Rebecca | December 18, 2006 1:03 PM
i'm lovin' the pretty party shoes.
what a little heartbreaker she's going to be. you are in trouble.
ali | December 18, 2006 1:05 PM
Just put 'em all together and you've still got one damn cute christmas card!
heels | December 18, 2006 1:14 PM
Okay, I cannot take it, she's just TOO cute!
Love the red dress.
Amanda | December 18, 2006 1:17 PM
Okay, I love all of those. Please tell me you used one of them for your cards. Please.
Isabel | December 18, 2006 1:29 PM
Oh look, my hand, how cool. Ha, I love that last one. Personally I think they all would work. Everyone knows toddlers only sit when they are having a tantrum or eating fruit snacks. Oh you could try fruit snacks.
Melissa | December 18, 2006 1:38 PM
lol oh those are hilarious. After those crazy shots, it is amazing you got such a beautiful photo for the actual Cactusfish Christmas card! (It arrived in Saturday's mail)
Btw, my card will get in the mail this week! I swear! :)
Teenuh | December 18, 2006 2:33 PM
The second one is VERY ladylike:-)
Samantha Jo Campen | December 18, 2006 2:52 PM
I'm loving the last picture...that would make for a great card!!
Emily | December 18, 2006 3:29 PM
Ok, forget the getting her to stand still part...how in the WORLD do you get those little TIGHTS onto her?? My husband has described putting pants on our son as "like trying to put pants on a cat." And don't even get me started on socks...I cannot fathom tights. She's adorable.
Danell | December 18, 2006 4:17 PM
It looks like she had a fun time while you were trying to get the perfect shot!
Beth in StL | December 18, 2006 8:20 PM
The pics are ossum! I'm surprised she let you put those white tights on her. Wonder how long THAT took you!
Dee | December 18, 2006 9:08 PM
I got mine in the mail today. So beautiful. Thanks. I get mine at JCPenney's, but I always try for some home ones too. Last year I bribed her with Hershey's Kisses.
ktjrdn | December 18, 2006 9:45 PM
Pre. Shus! Ohhhh. I want to smooch her cheeks!
You don't think that would freak her out, do you?
Cartwheels At Midnight | December 18, 2006 10:02 PM
I love the first one of her. I am going to post my also-rans today. I love her outfit. And aren't you brave with candy canes on your tree.
Annie | December 18, 2006 10:48 PM
Hello sleeve! What's up there?
I love that last photo. Sleeve fascination!
jonniker | December 19, 2006 12:16 AM
She is so beautiful! I htink that any of the rejects would have brought a lugh to people opening the card!
MK | December 19, 2006 1:34 AM
I think the pictures are better when she's not trying to stand still. They capture so much more personality when she's all over the place. So cute!
angela | December 19, 2006 10:00 AM
I think ANY of those pics would've been GREAT!! I know you hear this all the time, but she really is the cutest little thing!!
Celina | December 19, 2006 4:18 PM
I think next year you should do a montage of them all! Too cute.
Kelly | December 20, 2006 10:57 AM
Mia is too cute... I just love that cute little dress, with the tights, and shoes... it's just too cute.
